New International Version
8 To you, Lord, I called;
to the Lord I cried for mercy:
9 “What is gained if I am silenced,
if I go down to the pit?(A)
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your faithfulness?(B)
10 Hear,(C) Lord, and be merciful to me;(D)
Lord, be my help.(E)”
11 You turned my wailing(F) into dancing;(G)
you removed my sackcloth(H) and clothed me with joy,(I)
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
Lord my God, I will praise(J) you forever.(K)
